Berliner Philharmoniker

Schoenberg’s “Erwartung” and Rachmaninoff’s Third with Eun Sun Kim


Herbert-von-Karajan-Str. 1, 10785 Berlin

Works by Schoenberg & Rachmaninoff

Concert program

Arnold Schoenberg
Erwartung, Monodrama in one act, op. 17 
Tamara Wilson, Soprano

Sergej Rachmaninow
Symphony No. 3 in a minor, op. 44


This concert shows how contrasting musical worlds could be at the beginning of the 20th century. Arnold Schoenberg’s Expressionist monodrama Erwartung, with Tamara Wilson as the soloist, is highly innovative: an overwhelmingly intense, atmospherically evocative portrayal of fear and hope. On the other hand, Sergei Rachmaninoff’s late Romantic Third Symphony, written in American exile, is characterised by its melancholic view of the past. South Korean conductor Eun Sun Kim, music director of San Francisco Opera, makes her debut with the Berlin Philharmonic.
